-elected to a tenth term despite being absent most of the year and facing legal and health troubles. jesse jackson jr., son of civil rights leader reverend jesse jackson, announced his resignation this week citing, quote, several serious health issues, but jackson is also the subject of fbi and house ethics investigations. so let's bring in cnn legal contributor paul callan to talk a little bit more about this. paul, good morning. >> good morning, randi. >> the fbi is investigating jackson for allegedly misusing campaign funds for personal use, but he hasn't been charged with any crimes. what's he facing, and when are the consequences here? >> well, you know, there are two aspects to this investigation, and we don't know a lot about it, because there haven't been public announcements made by the justice department or the fbi, but one is personal use of campaign funds. there's a claim that he -- his funds were used to transport a mistress apparently back and forth from washington, d.c. to chicago at some point in time. there's a second aspect of the case though that i was looking at, and i think it mi
, another tremendous example of a vicious, vicious election. john quincy adams versus andrew jackson. andrew jackson was accused of being an adulterer and bigamist because of a cork in the divorce proceedings of his wife, rachel from her first marriage. this something that was circulated around the whole country called the handbill was a pamphlet that was posted throughout the country, showing the coffins. these are the man andrew jackson had supposedly killed, either as a general or ordering the execution. so being caught a bigamist, an adulterer and murderer and having them spread around the country widely wasn't that unusual. we like to think the good old days in powdered weeks. politics have always been a nasty business and it's always been a sharp knife business in the very beginning of presidential politics. >> host: is the power of the presidency changed over 44 different president? >> guest: well, i started out in "don't know much about the american presidents" to look at the very, very basic question of why we have a president. 225 years ago we just celebrated the constitution day a

reporters their jobs. i'm thankful for the jackson free press, specifically, staying on the mississippi voter i.d. story, when those of us up here in new york were having a heck of a time trying to follow the twists and turns of that mississippi voter i.d. story any other way. and we couldn't have done it without them. i'm thankful to the "miami herald" for keeping this great reporter, carol rosenberg, on the guantanamo beat, even when the country has largely turned away from that story. carol rosenberg's reporting is definitive and relentless, and it is a service to the country that the "miami herald" has kept her on that beat. i am thankful to the republicans and to the conservatives who will brave the people on their own side who tell them not to do it and who will nevertheless come talk to liberal hosts like me and the other liberal hosts like me here on msnbc. and yes, that means steve schmidt and michael steele and meghan mccain, who we've been able to bring on board officially here at this network, but also, everybody else on the right, who was willing to come on just as a guest,
and well born, basically the elite of the revolutionary time. this really changed when andrew jackson was elected, a champion of the common man and during the founding era, he switched from the founding era to bring his supporters into the government. his conviction was that officeholders in the government of their offices have and they basically thought that government jobs were simple and that anybody could handle them. mainly east of the mississippi river. the partisan approach led to the development of the spoils system and the governor of new york coin the phrase, to the victor belong the spoils of the enemy. in the middle of the nineteenth century, wholesale changes of personnel at partisan changes came with each new administration to spread corruption and kickbacks, so if you got a job with the the government, you were expected to take part of your salary and put it back in the party coffers of they could use that to campaign for the president next time. a progressive farm for reform, the spoils system. the president wants a cake and everybody wants a piece of backache. preside
think of what it took. it took johnny depp, natalie maines, peter jackson, it took my wife quitting her job and dedicating herself full time to this case, it took about a dozen attorneys, it took god knows how much money to change one case. eighteen years to change one case. so imagine what it would take to fight the system. you can't. you cannot -- the system is like a giant machine that's crushing people to death. and you can't fight it. the only thing you can do is, like kelly said, what we're doing right now. >> i have to say, that sounds pretty bleak. [laughter] >> it is. um, i guess the only thing, you know, i try to do what i can on a case-by-case basis, and i would just like to say tonight if anyone is interested in, um, learning about another case, maybe start with a friend of mine who is on death row in arkansas. his name was, his name is tim howard. he's still on death row right now. he's an innocent man. the state of arkansas is still trying to execute him. it would take forever to go into the details of the case, but if you are interested in learning about another case, may

[ horn honking ] >> you can hear the horn which wouldn't stop blaring as the flames and the smoke engulfed what was a toyota camry. it all happened just after 11:00 last night in the area of 50th avenue and international boulevard. the owner believes someone threw something into the car to start that fire and fire investigators say the burn pattern suggests this was a case of arson. there are no suspects at this time. >>> in san jose, investigators pinpointed the source of a thanksgiving night fire at a complex of town houses. the fire started in a fireplace as the tenants were trying to keep warm. however, investigators still don't know what caused the flames to spread so fast. that fire displaced 18 p
traditional conservative populism of a jackson or a reagan. certainly, when a country manages to deal with such deadlocks or to change the direction, it comes only through presidential leadership. it doesn't come through any other means. so, you've got a lot of red here, and that may be a good harbinger for your party but it does not say anything about how the country is going to move forward in terms of what you promote. so, given all of that -- if you buy any of it -- to what extent do you see any way in the world that the next four years will be anything other than a continuation of the last four, -- struggling, muddling through, kicking the can down the road and not really dealing with the fundamental problems of america? >> 3 very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts -- before and after the 2010 election, just as the clinton administration was also two parts. they never talk about -- the talk about the last six years, when republicans were present, -- were present, with welfare reform, but they never talk about the first two years when democrats ran e
popular myth back in 1815. but in 1815 what people were really celebrating was the idea that jackson had gone to battle with this total rag tag mig shah, the kentucky boys, and they have -- militia, the kentucky boys, and that they had succeeded in overcoming earlier problems. yes. >> the american navy had some ip newspapers in the war of -- influence in the war of 1812, finally got established there, and i'm wondering if your theory on romantic passion had anything related to the navy, because i always thought sailors were more romantically passionate than -- [laughter] >> thank you so much. the question is, weren't the sailors even more romantic and passionate than the soldiers, and what about the navy in the war of 1812? thank you very much for the question. i actually have a whole chapter on sailors in the book. you have to kind of figure out what your -- what you're going to abstract, so i didn't even mention the sailors, but you are right. they're very much in the same kind of patriotic vein that we have been talking about. >> what was general hull's involvement in the american rev
